According to the prevailing statistics and general understanding, the
US will have a Democratic President in this years' presidential election
at the end of this year. Among the democratic candidates, most likely
Senator Hillary Clinton will have the majority support to be nominated
as the Democratic candidate for the presidency. Then most probably she
will be elected as the president of the United Sates of America opening
up a new chapter in the history of USA being the first elected woman
president defeating Rudy Giuliani or any other Republican candidate
However it is, even though Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama are considered
as highly influential as intelligent senators, surprisingly their intelligence
about Sri Lankan terrorism and its problem and certain statements they
make about Sri Lankan terrorists have become highly controversial and
erroneous. It is high time that they correct these mistakes before it
is too late as the history shows how the fate had been for the terrorist
sympathizers politically and personally.
Ironically just few days ago FBI said that Sri Lankan Tamil terrorist's
organization as one of the most dangerous and deadly extremist outfits
in the world and the world should be concerned about the Tigers as they
had "inspired" networks worldwide, including the Al-Qaeda
In a January 10 report, posted on its website under the title "Taming
the Tigers," the FBI alleged that the LTTE had perfected the use
of suicide bombers, invented the suicide belt, pioneered the use of
women in suicide attacks, killed some 4,000 persons in the past two
years alone and "assassinated two world leaders - the only terrorist
organization to do so."
"Needless to say, the Tamil Tigers are among the most dangerous
and deadly extremists in the world. For more than three decades, the
group has launched a campaign of violence and bloodshed in Sri Lanka,
the island republic off the southern coast of India. Its ultimate goal:
to seize control of the country from the Sinhalese ethnic majority and
create an independent Tamil State," the report said.
Last week a senior terrorist operating in Sri Lanka has said that even
Senator Clinton has also recognized their movement as a legitimate organization.
When the entire world is fighting terrorism for a better world, everybody
should be aware how much the terrorists are capable of distorting the
truth and successful in buying advisors to the presidents, and other
leaders thus obtaining world wide support for their terrorist activities.
Senator Obama better study the Sri Lankan problem before issuing statements.
Just recently he said that the majority people in the countries make
minorities suffer thus paving way to civil wars.
Mr. Obama, Sri Lanka does not have a civil war, but the government is
fighting a ruthless terrorist organization which is the most dangerously
powerful. Do not become a joker by issuing wrongful statements and you
are respectfully requested to study the regional political history before
opening your mouth hereafter. Also Mr. Obama should know that the Tamil
terrorists have killed innocent Tamil civilians more than Sri Lankan
forces have killed the terrorists.
While the whole Sri Lanka is indebted to President Bill Clinton for
his bravery action of sending two frigates to Sri Lankan waters upon
request by some Sri Lankans living in the US, to save the Sri Lankan
forces in late 2000 when the Wanni terrorists issued ultimatum to surrender,
Senator Hillary Clinton is requested to be aware of Wanni terrorists
New York branch's underworld operations. Unfortunately still Sri Lankan
terrorists are sending millions of US taxpayers money to their covert
operations. The result is massacre after massacre aiming mostly innocent
The New York terrorists have been successful so far to stop the military
support that had been given by the US to Sri Lanka by wrong presentations
of human right abuses and other underworld operations. This decision
shall be reversed soon.
Fortunately Sri Lanka has come to the final stage of eradicating terrorism
from its soil.
The terrorists shall surrender peacefully in order to save their lives
and joining in to the civilized world once again or prepare to pay the
